Weeknight dinner: pork chop casserole
This particular dinner was something of a stretch for me: we aren’t much into casseroles around my house, but with some boneless pork chops taking up space in the freezer and the fact that it was too damn cold outside to bbq, I needed a solution, and this casserole was it!
I came across this recipe on the funny and lovely Bev Cooks blog and deemed it perfect for my pork chops. It is very much a meal made up of pantry staples as the other ingredients are simply red new potatoes, a can of cream of mushroom soup, sliced onion and cheddar cheese. Click on my photo above to link to her recipe: I followed her directions exactly.
To my surprise, both the husband and I really liked this! It is very much a basic “meat and potatoes” kind of meal, but sometimes it is nice to have something simple. We ate ours with a side of steamed green beans to balance the meal veg-wise. I would make this again, but perhaps with thin chicken breasts (cutlets).
A couple of recipe pointers - be sure that all of your ingredients (including the top layer of potatoes) are covered in the milk/soup mixture in order to cook properly and thoroughly. No one likes undercooked potatoes!
